Wastewaster reuse in the world

Adequate wastewater treatment, proper sanitation provision and solid waste management are essential for preventing degradation of the environment and the potential consequences on human health. The consequences of releasing untreated or inadequately treated wastewater include harmful effects on human health, negative environmental impacts, and negative impacts on economic activities (UN-Water 2017). The figure provides an idea of the number of water treatment or reuse plants in major countries around the world, with Africa generally lagging behind the rest of the world.
